A lovely chandelier that's a perfect fit for our dining room. Elegant and rustic at the same time. A great match for our antique dining room set. The chandelier puts out a great amount of light from each 60W bulb, and we have the unit on a dimmer switch. Super easy to put together. My husband had it assembled and hung within an hour. Note: There is one tiny hole (not noticeable unless you are up close) on the end of each of the ten spirals. You could easily hang crystals or decorations from those holes during the holidays or on special occasions. The shades are a lovely creamy beige, but I may order some leopard ones to spice things up! Very happy with this purchase.

I ordered two and am happy I did. The only reason I gave only 4 stars is having to put it together myself was a little bit of a pain. It isn't difficult to put together but getting my fingers into the small area was the issue. I would have paid a little more for chandeliers to have them already put together. Once together I love them and wish I had a place to put another one. Love the idea that I can change shades for different seasons.
I was looking for a reasonablly priced update for our dining room before we put our house on the market. I had seen similar chandeliers in Ballard Designs and Pottery Barn so this look for less was great. Easy to install and looked very nice.
This hangs so nicely in our two level front hall. The lighting is soft (we also use a dimmer) and I love having it on at night for a warm glow in the hall. It sits in front of a large arched upstairs window. The black iron (fake iron) looks classic and not fussy. The shades add an elegant touch. Did not think I would like the shades and thought of leaving them off, but they truly add a nice touch. Great deal for the money.
This is a beautiful chandelier, But....I like to got divorced over it lol The reason it's a reasonable price is because you are basically building the darn thing yourself. And it's definitely a two person job. My husband and I have put up many light fixtures and this one took the longest.....each arm of the chandelier has to be attached to the central post. You have to fish wire through each arm....and hooking it to the ceiling was awful and my husband nearly left me lol. But, after about 2 and a half hours of this fun, you get a really pretty chandy. I'd have given it 4 to 5 stars if there wasn't so much building involved. In fact, I'd have bought a second one for my kitchen, but it's just way too much work. I'd rather spend another 25-50 bucks and have the thing ready to hang. But if you're not busy and like a challenge, go ahead...you'll have a really pretty chandy when you're done!
